Karaván refers to several street food outlets on Budapest’s busy Kazinczy Street. From nachos to ice cream, and Pad thai to waffles, there’s something to suit every hungry tourist.
Besides its many great restaurants, Budapest also has a lively street food culture. Of these outlets, Karaván is one of the most convenient, combining stalls offering a whole variety of foods on a single, short street.
The ingeniously named Las Vegans is a hit, serving (as you’d imagine) vegan food including delicious burgers. Nearby you’ll find Mexican food at the Street Buffet, and highly-praised paprika langos at Langos Burger. To explain: langos are deep fried savoury doughs with grated cheese and sour cream, often considered the definition of Hungarian street food.
If you’re after something even more authentic, try the Transylvanian cabbage and goulash at Nyakleves.
To wash it all down, head to Karaván Drink Bar for a great selection of cold beers and even shots; you never know, you might just need it on a freezing winter’s day.
